The problem that I have with Brian Herbert is that his ideas have such potential that he is either unwilling or unable to explore fully. His concepts are strong and start off going in an interesting direction, but end up falling short. Though fun to read at times, "The Race For God" is full of plot points that only vaguelly connect to anything, when they do at, and has at least one rather significant loose-end that never gets tied. The characters are also less than fully developed, though I wouldn't call them two-dimensional. It was, however, fairly amusing and makes for good brain candy if you have nothing better to read.
